Be a Kid
Camp Indigo was founded on the belief that trans and gender diverse kids deserve a 'normal' summer day camp experience. Heading into year 6 we're excited to announce that we're expanding! In addition to our two weeks of camp in Oakland, we're hosting our inaugural summer in Boulder, Colorado!
June 1-5: Boulder
June 22-July 3: Oakland
"As a parent of a kid who has attended this camp for three years now, and who hears about this camp and all it’s glittery glory all year long, I want to say that I am so so grateful for the work you do with these kids. I have no doubt that you are quite literally saving lives in providing the safe and affirming space for our kids to be all of whoever it is they need and want to be." - Parent of 11 year old camper
What to Expect:
For kids 4-12
Camp Indigo follows a structured model of learning and play. Kids are grouped by age and rotate into art, science, maker, and outdoor play classes. Campers can interact and play across age groups at snack time, lunch, and during our all camp activities!
For Youth 12-15
We're hosting teen sessions in Oakland AND Boulder this year, and we're pumped to be partnering with the Venture Out Project and a local queer owned catering company to provide quality programming to our 12-15 year old campers.
Week 1 (Oakland and Boulder): The Venture Out Project
Join us for a week of trekking, wilderness survival skills, and a hike-in overnight camping trip with other trans and gender diverse youth. Professional explorer and wilderness First Aid certified leader, Graham, will lead our expeditions! Check out The Venture Out Project to learn more about this fantastic organization. All materials, transportation, and food included in the registration fee.
Week 2 (Just Oakland): Top Chef
Food brings us together! Come together in community as we chop, dice, and saute our way to good food. Trips to farmers markets, kitchens, and menu creation are the name of the game. We'll finish our week with a meal for our respective families - completely prepared by our teen campers!
"Our family has been a part of camp since the beginning. It's been such a joy to see our daughter find herself and her community here. We're so grateful for everything this camp provides!"
